Monthly Reflection – June 2017 – ‘Every person in every corner of the world is in need of evangelization’

Do you know that the Gospel is to be spread all over the world… that is, to every person and in every corner of the world? The need to evangelize is immense. It is not only the people who have not heard of the Gospel that need to be evangelized, but also Christians that have left their faith, are lukewarm towards God. These Christians need to be re-evangelized, need to be reached in a new loving way.

Through evangelization, everybody is to be reached. Every person in the world must have the opportunity to be evangelized. God loves every person, and so every person deserves to know the Gospel, to know that God loves him in a personal way. There is no exception to this, there are no excuses that in certain areas and places evangelization could not take place. There are no exceptions, either, to skin colour or race… Everyone, everyone must have the opportunity to know about the Gospel and to know that God loves them.

So who is going to evangelize these people? Every Christian that is baptised through the Holy Spirit is practically called and is responsible to evangelize. There is an opportunity to share about God’s love through our daily actions. We are to share His love at our work place, in our families, at our church gatherings, in the suburbs, to the prisoners, the sick, and so on. So there are no excuses that as Christians we do not know who to evangelize, because the opportunity is always there… it all depends on whether we take up this challenge and do it out of His love for others. Evangelization is a vital aspect of a Christian’s life. If you do it in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, then you can be a living testimony, a witness of His love.

Monthly Reflection – May 2017 – ‘Living our morals and values’

Recently I was wondering about how can the world be in peace? How can I actually love my neighbour? What must one do to fully live one’s Christianity?

There are many ways and means of how the above can be achieved. But as I was deeply thinking and reflecting about life, what came to my mind was that the above questions can be achieved if one lives the Christian morals and values.

Christian morals and values revolve around spiritual devotion, devotion to the family unit and church family, charity work and respect for and promotion of human dignity. If only each Christian had to fully live these morals and values it would be possible to live in peace, it would be easy to love your neighbour, one would really be living Christianity to the full.

But why is it that certain Christians do not live up to these morals and values? Many reasons could lead to such a situation, but the main reason in my opinion, is that there would not be a personal relationship with Jesus in one’s life. Having this personal relationship with Jesus, experiencing His love in a personal way, and giving oneself to the loving Father, would result that the person would fully live the Christian morals and values.  Having this personal relationship with Jesus, would strengthen the spirituality of the person’s life by going against the currents of today’s world, and be able to say ‘yes’ and live the Christian morals and values through peace and grace by the Lord.

So, this is my encouragement to all who want peace in their lives. Seek the relationship with Jesus, let Him mould you into His image… and He will give you the strength to live the Christian morals and values to the full.

Monthly Reflection – April 2017 – ‘Through the Cross we are saved’

During this time of the year, every Christian reflects more deeply about the Cross. The Cross that Jesus died on… the Cross that brought us Salvation. Through the Resurrection of Jesus the Cross paved the way for us to be saved. The Cross is the love of Jesus for all mankind.

On the Cross Jesus did not die only for Christians, but He died for all mankind, even if a person is an unbeliever or belonging to another faith, Jesus died for that person. Jesus is Love, and on the Cross He expressed His love through the suffering He went through, to bring us Salvation by the Resurrection.

This is what every Christian is responsible for, to preach, to share with other people, to be Jesus to others, to explain the Cross to all mankind. All mankind is to know about the Cross, as it is through the Cross that one can draw closer to Jesus.

Christians living this experience of knowing they are saved through the Cross are to be another Jesus to others. Through the help of Jesus, Christians are to carry the Cross in their daily lives and be witnesses to others. Christians are to show the world that through the Cross we are saved.

Are you letting Jesus to carry your cross in your live and show you the way to Salvation?

Monthly Reflection – March 2017 – ‘Go to Jesus with the wounds’

As Christians, we try to deal with spiritual wounds by going to Jesus. We are to go to Jesus in faith, and ask Him in a humble way to ‘Heal my wounds’. We are to trust Him, to be open to the Spirit of God and let Him penetrate into our hearts… into the deep corners of our hearts where these wounds have been resting for a number of years. These wounds have penetrated our hearts, deepening the scars of hate, anger, jealousy, revenge… of anything that separates us from the loving Father and from being a merciful person towards our neighbours. Indeed, these scars may hinder us from loving our neighbour.

We are not to be doubtful or afraid of approaching Jesus. We know that He loves us in a personal way and has died on the cross to express this love for us. He is there with open arms, ready to receive us back to the Father’s fold. Jesus is there to help us to rise up and walk again, and not to be a ‘crippled’ person in our spiritual lives. Jesus will give us His compassion, His forgiveness, His love, His comfort… and above all will give us His healing.

There is nothing to stop us or prevent us from going to Jesus. We are to let go of fear, of shyness, of pity… we are to be strong in our faith… to let go of sin and steadfastly go to Jesus. We are to give our wounds to Jesus, to receive Him in our hearts, to receive His healing.

Monthly Reflection – February 2017 – ‘Jesus and the cross’

Do you ever dedicate time to reflect upon the episode when Jesus died on the cross? Do you know that when Jesus died on the cross, He nailed all sins to the cross and set you free?

Jesus died on the cross because He loves you. He embraced the cross out of love to set you free from all sins, to set you free from not believing in Him… He is Jesus the Son of God.

When Jesus embraced the cross, He was embracing you, embracing the same cross you carry in your daily life. The daily cross you carry in your life, is ‘lighter’ to carry if you trust in Him.

We are to be another Jesus in our life, by being Jesus to others. Embracing our cross in our life, through the grace and love of Jesus, is when we are Jesus to others.

Embracing our cross is embracing Jesus.

In Peace

Monthly Reflection – January 2017 – ‘Be bold and share the Good News’

During the past weeks, I have reflected a lot upon people who are spiritual wounded. People who have suffered by being abused or bullied, through illness, experiencing the loss of someone special, traumas caused through divorce and many more sufferings. Sufferings that can easily result in a spiritual wound of not believing in God and of feeling abandoned by God. These spiritual wounds can have the consequence of finding it difficult to love one’s neighbour, difficult of helping others and of not being in peace.

But what can one do to help these people? How can one help these people to overcome these spiritual wounds? How can these people be spiritual strong again?

In my opinion we need to be bold and share the Good News. We are to share the Good News to these people to give them hope that even in these sufferings, Jesus loves them in a personal way. We are to help them grow in their faith, to trust Jesus in these sufferings, and to ask Him to heal these spiritual wounds.

We are to be there beside them, to comfort them, just as Jesus would comfort them. We are to be Jesus to them… we are to be the suffering Jesus to these people… and present them to the Cross.

We are to be bold, not to be afraid, to ask the Holy Spirit to use us to share the Good News with the suffering people. This is the mission for all those who follow Christ. The mission to make a difference in society to share the Good News to all.

So, the challenge for this year is to be bold and share the Good News.

In Peace

Monthly Reflection – December 2016 – ‘A Christmas present to the world… let the unborn babies live’

Another Christmas is here. Houses, shops, schools, churches, and streets are already decorated with different colourful lights. Parties are organised, presents are bought, sermons are prepared and buying the food for the Christmas meal is already being done. All this to bring joy to the world by remembering of the birth of Jesus.

During this period, we will hear many speeches all over the world by prominent people. Usually these speeches would focus to bring peace to the world and to end different wars. Also, a lot of good initiatives are held during this time by visiting the homeless, the elderly, by giving present to the poor and such others.

But what would be the best speech, the best initiative, the best Christmas present one can give to the world. This Christmas, the best present to the world is… ‘to let the unborn babies live’. I encourage all prominent people and the public to speak out, to be bold, to be a voice to the voiceless… ‘to let the unborn babies live’. We are to take up initiatives by visiting mothers to be, to encourage them that whatever situation they are passing through, they can be a loving mother… just like Mary.

‘Let the unborn babies live’… let them experience life, listen to the birds, feel the rain and wind, play and cry. ‘Let the unborn babies live’… to go to school, to make friends, to go to work, to be tomorrow leaders of the world. ‘Let the unborn babies live’… to live as we did, to rejoice as we did, to be sad as we did, to feel the pain as we did, to be happy as we did, to be parents as we did.

This is the voice of the voiceless ‘let me live this Christmas and the years to come… let me live as a baby and grow’.
